Nokia Officially Introduces The N9, First Pure-Touch Smartphone
We’ve seen renders of the Nokia N9 a couple of hours before its launch and the Finnish manufacturer has officially announced the smartphone as the “first-ever pure touch smartphone”, powered by MeeGo.
The Nokia N9 is a buttonless slate that has a unibody design, sports a 3.9-inch curved glass AMOLED display with the innovative laminated display technology that brings content closer to the glass. It has FWVGA resolution (854 x 480 pixels) while its processor is a Texas Instruments OMAP3630 1GHz CPU aided but a PowerVR SGX530 GPU. There’s 1GB RAM on board as well as either 16GB or 64GB storage for the two main variants.
The radio is quad-band GSM and penta-band WCDMA, there’s Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi b/g/n, NFC, GPS, eight-megapixel auto focus camera with Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash and super wide 28mm lens, with 16:9 720p video recording capability. Other features include ambient light, proximity, compass, and orientation sensor, plus a micro SIM slot. All this will be powered by MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan and will be available later this year, with no exact information made public yet.
